Re: MRE Meals

I don't remember the brand name, but I remember that they were N-A-S-T-Y ... made the MRE a much better choice.

Re: Where will you be on the 20th anniversary of Desert Stor

Should we petition/pressure the Kuwait Embassy in Washington or can I take your notes back to the Amiri Diwan or what?
I think it is noteworthy that most agree that it is their country and that we believe they are free to do as they wish ... maybe pass this on if you get a chance.

Re: MRE Meals

I actually didn't care what it was ... it was food ... I ate em all. I had a huge stash of food, water, and ammo in my track. I took a likin' to the MRE bread with peanut butter and jelly to get a break from the MREs. What I didn't like was the little cans of what ever the hell it was ... macaroni? ...

Re: VA Care and Activity

Review and become familiar with the examination worksheet for your condition. Find the examination worksheet for each condition and answer the questions yourself ... write 'em down if you need to. The examination worksheets are located at: http://www.vba.va.gov/bln/21/Benefits/exams/index.htm Find t...

My thoughts?

It's their country ... let them do what they want ... or not ... up to them ... no outside pressure.

Re: has anyone recieved a disability claim for GWS

Very few claims are actually granted for Gulf War Syndrome. They are more likely to be granted for 'multisymptom' disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fybromyalgia, or such.

Don't know if this answers your question, but hope it helps.

Why do you ask?

Re: C&P

Do you know what it is for? Go in with some info, find out what it's for and you could go in with a checklist of what they are going to cover. It helps ... but you gotta know before you go. Here is a link to all of the worksheets the VA docs are supposed to use to evaluate your disabilities during y...

Re: VA Care and Activity

Hang with it Red ... work through it ... skin the onion.

I did it and it helped me a lot with my anger ... I've got other issues ... trust as one example.

If it works for you, great. If it don't ... at least you can say you tried. Who can ask more from ya than that. Do your best.

Good luck with it.
